The City of West Fargo, Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Council of Governments (Metro COG) and their partners are working to prioritize short-term and long-range planning for Ninth Street from Seventh Avenue E. to 12th Avenue NE. in West Fargo.

Community members are able to participate by taking a short online survey to express their needs and future wishes for the Ninth Street corridor this month. The survey asks thirteen questions related to primary use, safety and aesthetic improvements, congestion levels and opportunity for open comment. The survey will take less than 10 minutes to complete and will close on Friday, June 28.

Respondents will be entered to win one of four $25 gift cards from Family Fare Supermarket and Casey’s General Store. The survey responses will be used to help identify the direction of alternatives developed for the future of the corridor that will be shared in September.

The Ninth Street corridor in the study area is broken into two very distinct roadways, separated by Main Avenue.

  • South of Main Avenue, Ninth Street is a three-lane urban roadway surrounded by residential and institutional development including West Fargo City Hall, Police Department and West Fargo High School. Neighborhoods adjacent to or near the corridor include Main Avenue, East Main, Brookwood, Berger, Sommerset, Meyer and North Industrial Park.
  • North of Main Avenue, Ninth Street is a two-lane rural roadway surrounded by industrial and agricultural properties. The City of West Fargo has also designated this as part of its truck route network. Metro Area Transit (MATBUS) serves a portion of this section of the corridor with its Route 20.

    If you bike, walk, drive, use MATBUS Route 20, or are a freight carrier that uses the truck route, your comments will provide valuable input to help shape the future of this important corridor in West Fargo.
